It’s time to say goodbye

I’m free!

Today is officially my last day with Pronove Tai & Associates. I have hinted several times, have told some people of my plans, and this week, I confirmed with my colleagues that this will be my last week. And now, I’m confirming it here.

Though I’ve settled my own concerns with him privately, at one point, I can still see that he could be a better person to the others.

I also am aware that some of the people who demand to be treated fairly are not returning the same favor.
